Michigan star running back Blake Corum is expected to have season-ending knee surgery, sources told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Corum, who sustained the ailment two weeks ago against Illinois, tried to play versus Ohio State on Saturday but logged only two carries. He's expected to make a full recovery, Rapoport adds.

The star running back's injury is a big blow to a Wolverines team ranked No. 2 in the latest edition of the College Football Playoff rankings. They face Purdue in the Big Ten title game on Saturday. Michigan, which is 12-0 this season, is expected to advance to the CFP semifinal even if the team fails to win the Big Ten.

Corum put on a show in 2022, racking up 1,464 yards (5.9 per carry) and 18 touchdowns on the ground en route to becoming one of the top candidates for the Heisman Trophy.

With Corum banged up last week, running back Donovan Edwards stepped up with 216 rushing yards and two touchdowns, helping Michigan claim a 45-23 victory over Ohio State.

Corum has amassed 2,783 scrimmage yards and 33 touchdowns in 30 appearances across three seasons at Michigan.
